To Russia, with love

Dear Marc, I'm just back from 33 hours in Russia. I've just finished listening to my Anna Karenina audiobook and I have that empty feeling you have when you've finished a book you don't want to end. In this case, 33 hours might seem like it almost didn't.

It's such a great soap. With a mix of infidelity, intrigues, death, existentialism, romance and fashion. It deals with problems we still have, and some that are lost in history. Like being a little embarrassed cause your horses don't match each other when you take your caleche downtown. It never gets old.

His wife (top left) is my hero. Another day I will tell you why. Right now must go read Patricia Volk's Stuffed. It's Christmas. All I want to do is read, eat, and read about food.

On your reccomendation I also bought from Audible assuming that it would be sort of funny because you are...I'm a little disapointed.

Meanwhile Happy New Year and we await your comming to live in UK

All the best Robert

I can not interpret this in any other way than that you prefer me to Tolstoy. You can not understand what an immense and impossible compliment this is to me. From the bottom of my heart, I thank you.

If you want to laugh as you read, I recommend David Sedaris. I will NEVER be that funny. he is a genious.

For instant joy, read "nuit of the living dead" from david's book "dress your family in curduroy and denim". skitsnack
